THE UNiVERSAI CAll ANNOUNCEMENT of Interest to MILLIONS of FAMINES "1 will build a uar for the muHlude  Said Henry Ford in 1903---Read how the fulfillment of that DrOphecy is now made poible through the Ford Y/ee&ly Purchaso Plan For many years it has been Henry Ford's pro sonal ambition to make the Fordthe universal car to put it within the reach of the millions of people who have never been privileged to enjoy the bone fits of motor ear ownership. During the past fifteen years over 7,500,000 Ford cars have been placed in the hands of retail customers---more than a millilon and a half of them within the past twelve months--and yet there are still millions of families who are hopefully looking forward to the day when they can own a Ford. And now the way is open. Under the terms of thi plan you can select your Ford Car, set aside a small amount each week and you will be surprised how soon you will own it. In the meantime your money will be safely deposited to your credit where it will draw interest. Think it over. Five dollars will start an aceount. The whole family can participate in it- father, mother, brothers and sisters each doing a little. Why not start today. Stop in and talk it over with your 10l Ford dealer. He will be glad to fully explain the details of the plan and help you get started toward the ownership of a Ford car. Ford Motor Company, DeCeit, Michigan. a W001ffHl[ M010100 C0. THOS. A.
